Starting on Monday, seniors within the Interior Health region will be able to book appointments for a COVID-19 vaccine.

IH said those 90 or older and Indigenous people 65 or older will be able to call and book appointments for vaccines.

Immunization appointments for the region will begin on March 15th, and appointments can be made starting on March 8th.

Eligible patients will be broken down into three age groups:

  • Call on Monday, March 8th or after:
    • Those born in or before 1931 (90+ years old).
    • Indigenous people born in or before 1956 (65+ years old), and Elders.
  • Call on Monday, March 15th or after:
    • Those born in or before 1936 (85+ years old).
  • Call on Monday, March 22nd or after:
    • Those born in the year 1941 or earlier (80+ years old)

IH said the call centre is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to book an appointment. The number to contact the health authority is 1-877-740-7747.

Vaccine clinics in each community will be sized depending on the location.

“Interior Health will establish a combination of small, medium and large clinics throughout the region, based on population and local needs. As the province’s vaccine program continues to expand, Interior Health will increase capacity with additional clinics opening by mid-April,” said the health authority.

IH added that residents should remain vigilant against fraud, and its call centres will not ask for financial information, credit card details or social insurance numbers.

  • legal name
  • date of birth
  • postal code
  • personal health number (PHN) from the back of B.C. driver’s licences or BC services cards, and
